L4ser Rame



Materials and tools needed:
Glass cutter
Laser pointers
Hot glue
Wood back board
Dry ice/fog machine

Step 1: Design

Draw a design on paper to cut out and trace on to back board

Step 2: Cutting Glass

Cut glass into pieces generally the same size
We did 1 inch by 1 inch pieces for most of the ram with a few smaller pieces to fill gaps and we cut larger pieces for the boarder

Step 3: Glue Mirrors Down

Glue each mirror as close to the last as possible trying to fill every gap
Make sure the mirror used for the inside design is facing out and the mirror used for the boarder is facing in

Step 4: Position and Glue Laser Pointers

Position each laser pointer so that it's laser bounces off as many mirror surfaces as possible to fill each area with as many lasers as possible
This will take some adjusting for each laser to get it right

Step 5: Drilling Holes

Now that you have the mirrors and lasers in place you will need to drill holes in the back board in spots where the most lasers cross for fog to come through and make the lasers more visible

Step 6: Bucket of Fog

Now take a bucket and fill it with water then drop some dry ice in (or just use a fog machine)
Then place the backboard over the bucket and the fog will rise up through the holes that were drilled in the previous step

Step 7: Turing the Lasers on

There are several ways to do this but we just used tape to keep the buttons on the lasers pushed down so that why would continuously light up

Step 8: Putting It All Together
